GUTS

Today’s not your average music GOAT review is by Parisian hip hop/Afro-funk /soul/electronic music producer  GUTS ( Fabrice Franck Henri)  new album’ philanthropiques'(March 2019). It is the Mama Makeba sizzler for this year (to date).

 

GUTS  started out making hip hop music before branching out to experiment with further genres of music.

GUTS  started out his career in the 90’s as a beat maker. He has collaborated with Common & De La Soul to name a few artists.

I call songs like this #goatbahs   or G.reatest O.f A.ll  T.ime ( or another translation dope songs) because I  think music like this in a league of its own.

 It is a song that reminds me of my childhood in Africa, Barcelona, Miami and all places tropical.  I’m a huge fan of French hip hop/electronica/genre.

‘Kenke corner’ has an infectious beat, rhythm & is guaranteed to take you to another place. A vibrant place  full of soul. A place to lose yourself & soak up multiple cultures.

This has got to be one of my fave songs for spring/summer 2019.

Guts-Philanthropiques album is clearly influenced by his love of the Balearic islands, Africa, Brazil, the Caribbean.

It’s like taking a trip to al the best tropical destinations.

GUTS called on a diverse bunch of global music artists to infuse this afro tropical album with an array of instruments-trombones, saxophones flutes, drums, bass & guitar, keyboards & we have an album that scintillates with celebration for life.

This experimental album has been labelled as  Afro Tropical.

Grab your virtual ticket and soar over jungle beats, bass & funk.

If you like this song or album then I would recommend listening to his ‘Les Bienhereux’ album to show how diverse his music is.

FACT: This is the first album to be recorded & released by wax on records  music ( Nightmares on wax label)

It’s fresh, funky, soulful, vibrant, and full of flavour.
